The Big Reveal!

It's been quiet around here lately huh? Well it's for good reason.

I've had a lot going on lately because I started my new desk job until I can make enough green through personal training. So far I like it a lot and it's only part time so I have time before 8 am and after 2:30 pm to do as I please and it's database work so not the kind of stuff you bring home with you.

So what have I been doing with my time away from blogging? Besides running. Setting up my new online personal training business! What! What on earth is online personal training? Don't trainers have to squat next to you and scream at you and drink your tears? No, we actually don't. There are a few reasons I chose to go the online route right now and a few key benefits I like to point out to people. First, it saves me a lot of time and time is money. By not driving all over creation to train people at different locations or paying gym use rental fees and additional insurance premiums I save myself a lot of headaches. Especially since I hate to drive. Another benefit for me is that I get to work for myself which has always been a goal of mine growing up. It's not a power thing because I don't want employees but it's more of a flexibility thing. I get to decide when I do things and that makes fitting in long runs (and other workouts) a lot easier. I also don't have quite the strain on my body that I would have with more hands on training.

But enough about me, let's talk about YOU! What are the benefits to online personal training? The biggest is cost. Working online allows me to charge lower rates because (as mentioned earlier) I'm incurring a lot less cost myself. I'm saving money and I'm passing the savings on to youuuu! Does anyone else remember that Family Guy episode?



In all seriousness though, personal trainers can be really expensive and that's always been the biggest obstacle I've heard from people for why they don't have one. My goal is to try to change that and make it more affordable and more reasonable. You can workout anywhere you'd like. If you have access to a gym, great! The Trainerize app makes it really easy to pull up your scheduled workout and perform it in a gym or at home or even in hotel rooms. You tell me what you want and I do my best to make that happen.

I could talk about this all day but it's still a work in progress. Feel free to go to the site if you'd like (keep in mind it's still under construction...tips welcome!) and on the top right click the green button to Become a Client! Just make sure you DO NOT PAY yet. You can also just click the Contact Me button to send me a message if you have more specific questions.

I will hopefully be up and training on September 1st and have a special gift for anyone who signs up before then and even more special if you happen to be one of my dozen loyal readers! Hope everyone has a great weekend! Here's a video of week 6 of marathon training so far for your viewing pleasure.

Year 30

Is this thing on? I've been struggling with a bit anxiety out of nowhere over the past year and a half so in an attempt to keep my head from spinning I'm going to try my return to writing.

I turned 30 in February and it's seriously been my best year. Suddenly I stopped caring so much about things, and more about *gasp* my family and friends. Weird right? But in caring more about people, I also started to care less about their opinions on my life choices. That said, I am going to provide you with a VERY brief rundown of the 3 major life events happening right now:


We are buying a house! Maybe... Yay right? Back in October I found this really great house under a lease option contract that we ended up snatching up. It's in a nice, established neighborhood where *most* people own and genuinely take care of their houses. Not at the Hank Hill lawn level but I'm talking seasonal outdoor decorations and it just happens to be the neighborhood other parents bring their kids t…

Burn the Past

One of my old pastors used to say "God gave you two ears and one mouth so you could listen twice as much". I've always been a pretty decent listener. I was always in the top 5 during games of Simon Says and with a mother like mine, you needed to do your best to prevent her repeating herself. But one area where I really struggle is listening to what God says to me and what direction to go in my life. I'm a control freak. There, I said it. There have been times in my life where I've had to schedule not only when I would have free time but what I would do during said free time. I've literally put "watch tv" on my calendar. So is it any surprise that when someone says to "let go and let God" I have trouble leaving my entire life and existence to someone other than myself? Not only that, but someone who isn't a someone at all? To someone I can't see, don't understand, don't know how to listen to and just have to have blind faith…

Guess Who's Back

Sometimes my thoughts get really overwhelming and when that happens I usually have to do something active and relatively creative. I've been using coloring books since before they were cool and strangely baking is still a big go-to for me but there's also writing. Today while lamenting to the husband he suggested I write a blog to try to just get shit out. So that's what I'm doing.

We are moving back to Louisville. Yay? I guess that's still TBD. I love Louisville, I really do and I have for years but like a weird, slightly dysfunctional, long term relationship, love just wasn't enough. I felt trapped and suffocated. I had created this identity box for myself and while it worked for a while it eventually turned into my coffin. It was tiny and I didn't feel like it could fit everything I wanted to be a part of my identity. 15 months ago I was exercise and non-profit worker Rennay. That's it. When we moved I realized it was a true clean slate. Absolutely n…
